Latest DDoS Trends and the rise of ransom-driven attacks

DDoS attacks have dominated the charts in terms of frequency, sophistication, and geo-distribution over the last year. Ransom DDoS attacks are also surging, crippling organizations' network infrastructure and taking them offline while demanding ransom in bitcoin. Unlike ransomware attacks, these ransom DDoS attacks do not even require the hacker to access an organization’s internal systems before they can be carried out.

There are no signs of DDoS attacks going away anytime soon. How do organizations ensure that their Internet assets are protected against threats of any size or kind?

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

* Key Q2 2021 DDoS attack trends
* Ransom DDoS threats — and what you can do if you are affected
* Steps organizations can take to make the impact of DDoS attacks a thing of the past

  • Creating a Successful Security Awareness Training Program Sep 22 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Larry Cates and Suzanne Gorman
    Organizations historically have relied on their Cybersecurity, IT and their Networking teams to purchase
    technologies to provide defense-in-depth protection for their organizations. While this is necessary, most
    organizations never think that their biggest risk is actually their untrained employees.
    With the onslaught of phishing, malware, ransomware attacks and Business Email Compromise or CEO
    Fraud, we are at a critical point that each and every organization needs to have a successful training
    program in place to properly educate their employees on how to identify social engineering attempts, or
    they are almost guaranteed to fall short of its security objectives and they will become a victim of
    cybercrime, and in many cases this can be a very expensive lesson to be learned.
    Ninety percent of security breaches are caused by Human Error. A successful security awareness training
    program will not only educate your employees. A successful program will also empower them to make
    changes to their behavior and embrace a security minded culture, securing themselves and in turn,
    securing your organization.
    But how can organizations take the next step beyond training when changing human behavior is such a
    complex process. Traditional security awareness programs are not enough—you need to develop
    Security-Minded Employees and make it part of the corporate culture.
    In this webinar, Larry Cates, President and CEO, and Suzanne Gorman, Vice President, Information Security
    and Risk Management Evangelist with Global Learning Systems will discuss:
    ● Setting objectives to make your program successful
    ● Biggest risks to any organization
    ● Elements of a Successful Security Awareness Program
    ● Quantifying Your Success
  • Privacy SIG: A Delicate Balance: When Security and Privacy Want Opposite Things Sep 21 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Daniel Ayala
    Usually, privacy and information security professionals have a shared mission to protect information. But what happens when their approaches and objectives conflict with each other or make it impossible for them to coexist within a specific use case? From the physical world to the technology realm, there has long been give-and-take necessary to find the right balance between privacy and security in protecting and defending. As privacy (or its more appropriate term, data protection) is about respecting the person, and their decisions around data use and depends heavily on security technologies to be effective, the importance of collaborating continues to increase but remains challenging. We will cover the history of these two worlds' relationship across the physical and technical domains. By reviewing cases, including the recent news that Apple will soon check for CSAM data on users' devices, we will discern how to discuss, understand and find the balance between security and privacy for different use cases, risk postures and constituencies.
  • Achieving Regulatory Compliance in the Microsoft Cloud Recorded: Sep 16 2021 60 mins
    Brendan Hoffman and Lisa Abshire
    Regardless of the industry, most organizations report to unique regulatory bodies with their own set of requirements– and meeting those requirements only becomes more complicated when data and applications are stored in the cloud. And on top of that, many companies find themselves lacking direction around Data Loss Prevention (DLP), legacy data archiving, data classification, document tagging, third party access, and other issues that can bring your organization out of good standing with those regulatory bodies.

    How can your company quickly adapt your cloud controls, standards, and processes to maintain compliance under changing conditions?

    In this webinar, our group of experts will provide guidance on tools and resources for your organization to develop a roadmap to better tackle your compliance needs in the Azure cloud.

  • The New Approach to AQPR Cybersecurity Risks to the Business Recorded: Aug 10 2021 61 mins
    Yotam Ben Ezra, Vice President of Product, SafeBreach and Valeriy Leykin Director of Product, SafeBreach
    Understand What Matters - The New Approach to Assessing, Quantifying, Prioritizing, and Reducing Cybersecurity Risks to the Business

    Today’s security teams navigate significant layers of complexity, contending with too many different standards and too many disparate technologies. The proliferation of technologies and terminology, in turn, generates a broader challenge: getting teams across the organization to speak plainly and generate consensus about risks to the business, all using a common language.
    The reality is that too often there’s a fundamental gap between the cybersecurity strategy and business goals and priorities that conspires against the success of each of these roles.
    Join us to learn how your organization can begin to achieve a common language and align priorities for reducing risk by employing risk-based vulnerability management, and by establishing a model for cyber risk quantification (CRQ) within the enterprise.
    During the webinar we’ll discuss:
    ● Why a risk-based vulnerability management approach enables you to drive down and prioritize the risks that pose the gravest threats to the business
    ● A new, proposed model for quantifying cyber risks
    ● How a simple calculation and defining three key terms can provide a blueprint for aligning the organization
    ● How the model can be applied in less mature and in more mature organizations
    ● Which technologies will best support your cyber risk quantification efforts
  • Redefining Cloud Security in a Perimeter-Less World with Machine IM Recorded: Aug 4 2021 59 mins
    Muralidharan Palanisamy, Chief Solutions Officer, AppViewX
    Cybersecurity for a long time revolved around the central idea of the classic network perimeter, driven by the theory—inside is trusted and outside must be verified. When the cloud burst onto the enterprise IT landscape, many organizations resisted cloud migration because it infringed on the traditional concept of the network perimeter. Moving data and applications outside the data center into the cloud meant no control over user access and data security.

    Today, the enterprise IT landscape is undergoing a radical transformation. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has irrevocably altered workplace dynamics. Retail office spaces have closed doors and organizations have shifted to long-term remote work. To support modern workforce needs, organizations are rapidly moving data and applications to multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud environments. The once trusted network perimeter is slowly disappearing. And cloud security has yet again become a top priority for business leaders. Thankfully, cybersecurity has evolved significantly, shifting the focus from network to identity as the new perimeter. And, machine identity is the modern approach to cybersecurity in a perimeter-less environment.

    Machine identity-driven solutions such as Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and CLM (Certificate Lifecycle Management) help organizations take complete control of all digital assets and enable secure online communication regardless of where they are located. This helps build a fluid and agile cybersecurity model that is identity-first and location-independent.
    Join this webinar to understand how machine identity is redefining cloud security for today’s distributed and hybrid IT environments and helping organizations build cyber-resilience.
